On Monday, BBC America released some new images (one of them a cool animated one you can see below, and the other a still image seen above) for the upcoming Doctor Who Christmas special, Twice Upon a Time.

The latest in the popular annual installments will be particularly notable this year, as it marks the final appearance of Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor, and it will see Capaldi's Doctor regenerate into Jodie Whittaker's Thirteenth Doctor (Whittaker starts her regular role as the Doctor in the series next year).

Here's a look at the animated image BBC America released:

According to BBC America, Twice Upon a Time "sees the Time Lord team up with his former self, the first ever Doctor (David Bradley) and a returning Bill Potts (Pearl Mackie), for one last adventure. Two Doctors stranded in an Arctic snowscape, refusing to face regeneration. Enchanted glass people, stealing their victims from frozen time. And a World War One captain destined to die on the battlefield, but taken from the trenches to play his part in the Doctor's story."

The network further describes the special as "an uplifting new tale about the power of hope in humanity’s darkest hours, Twice Upon A Time marks the end of an era. But as the Doctor must face his past to decide his future, his journey is only just beginning..."

Guest-starring Mark Gatiss as the World War One captain and Nikki Amuka-Bird as the voice of the glass woman, Twice Upon a Time is written by Steven Moffat and will run one hour.
